I don’t normally use Silver Efex, but a client gave me some files that they had edited with Silver Efex. Has anyone experienced artifacts or strange tonal transitions when using this plugin?
The file processed with Silver Efex looks decent until I turn on the soft proof and then I can see some odd transitions from deep shadows into blacks. (I haven’t tried printing it yet, so it may not print with the artifacts.)
I can edit the raw file pretty easily to match the Nik output, but if Silver Efex gets us there quicker, I’d consider integrating it into our workflow.
